Freshwater Fishing Lures

There are lots of varieties of freshwater fishing lures now available. The type of lure you use is actually dependent on various elements such as clearness of water, depth, and whether or not the water has lots of cover such as weeds and brush.

Lets consider some of the different types of fishing lures.

Spinners
The spinner bait is made of a blade that rotates on a spindle when getting retrieved. The blade gives off a flash of light that is reflected on the revolving blade. The reflection makes the blade appear to be a bait fish swimming through the water. You may also adjust the speed of the turning blade by either speeding up or reducing your retrieve.

Spoons
It's self evident spoon lures obtained their name considering they are similar to the head of a spoon. They mimic a bait fish by doing a flickering and wobbling movement or action. Spoons are perfect for newbies in lure fishing; easy to use as well as affordable.

Topwater Lures
These lures are used on the top ot the water surface and considered to be the most explosively heart stopping of all lures as one could actually see the fish taking the lure, and the anticipation and the expectation can be an stimulating experience. The fish can be completely seen jumping out of the water when they attack a surface lure. Since these lures are being retrieved on the surface of the water, they can be a great choice in locations that contain significant amounts of weeds.

Suspending lures
When this lure has dived or fallen to the needed depth and left alone, it will continue on being suspended to that depth. For this reason, this type is perfect for going after fish concealed near the weed beds, rocks or banks.

Floating drivers
Floating lures cover a wide range in diving depths; starting from just beneath the surface up to fifteen feet or more. The diving depth is established on the point of view of the vane or fin to the body of the lure. The less the angle to the body of the lure the deeper it can dive. The shape as well as the size of the vane and the lures body plays a role in the actual movement of the plug in the water.

Jerk baits
Having no motion of its own when in the water, the angler provides life to this lure; each time the rod trembles or shakes or is jerked, this lure can appear to be alive. This lure in general, mimics an injured or wounded fish that the prey fish find attractive.

Sinking plugs
These are excellent for deep water fishing, wherein the retrieve can start soon as the chosen depth is reached. This is accomplished by counting down before one starts the retrieval process. Therefore, the same depth will be attained whenever one casts. The distance that the lure has sunk down in a particular time frame, will give a suggestion of how deep or how far down the fish are situated when they strike; thus this is called the sink rate of the lure.

Soft baits
This is soft rubber bait that comes in various shapes and forms, with matching sizes and colors. Worms, lizards, crawfish, etc. These are very popular in freshwater fishing, which can be used on a weighted jig head and fished like the jerk bait, being managed just like the plug.

As you have seen, there are numerous types of freshwater fishing lures available. Make it a goal to possess a minimum of one of each on your next fishing trip. With a little practice you will get the hang of using each one of these.
